    I worked at Target full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Diverse workplace, consistent schedule for those who were proven hard workers, ability to cross-train within store if you are self-motivated

    Cons

    Want to advance? Good luck playing the favorite game or competing against continuous outside hires who are always chosen over the loyal employees who are trying to advance - at initial promise of upper management. Myself and others were being trained for almost three years to become a Team Lead or similar ( but the district continued to repeatedly hold us back in favor of hiring outside people or promoting favorites/friends. Expected us to do the level of work and have the constant responsibility and expectation of a team lead when you are not fully trained or receiving compensation/benefits of that actual position. No respect. Oh, and they continue to pile more and more on the floor team while consolidating positions - you can't expect one person to simultaneously run softlines clean-up, pricing, truck push, visual merchandising, AND give customers the new mindset of extra micromanaged attention that management now expects, especially when only a few people are on the floor on a truck day. Enjoy the miserable staff and high turn around and disorderly stores these days!!!

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Target part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You don't have to deal with annoying Christmas music because they don't play music. Sometimes would get "parties" for employees where you'd get food and drinks.

    Cons

    The company would act like they cared about you, but the company isn't much better then Walmart. Granted the food parties were nice, but it was basically like giving a crying child candy. Doing it just to keep the employees from complaining. No clear communication on what needs done and if someone isn't doing their job you are supposed to correct them because management is nowhere to be found. Spending excessive amounts of time making the store look perfect just to have it ruined in the first 5 minutes the next day. Having constant employee meetings about what we're supposed to be making that day and why we're not making it, even though we can't do anything about it. If you work on register you have to make sure to check people out quickly or you get a bad grade and if you get too low of a daily grade then you get talked to. Constant moving around of management so no one knows what they are doing or who you are reporting to. Have to work way too much to be able to make .1 hours of pto.
